HELP I'm an atheist who has to preach a Christian sermon!
4 months ago · · Atheism,
Okay, so I have considered myself atheist for about a year now. Nobody knows this though, and since I live with my Christian family, I don't want to cause unnecessary stress by leaving publicly now. I have kept going about my life, just without believing what I learn in church.
I'm kind of in a pickle because I was asked to preach a sermon during an upcoming service that will be run by the youth group. I was really the only person who they thought could do it (I write and I'm not completely opposed to talking in front of people). I said yes because they needed help and it would be really out of character for me to turn them down.
So now I'm kind of in a moral dilemma because I really don't know if it would be disrespectful to preach as an atheist even though I would be promoting Christianity. And on the flip side, I don't want to be promoting something I don't believe in.
What do I do?
